  1. I haven't posted so much here or anywhere, because it angers me so much.

    I'm angry with all involved here quite honestly, and I seriously believe from start to finish this has been caused by people thinking about their own political career, rather than attempting to lead in any way. From Cameron to Bojo to May all the recent quitters.

    What people don't seem to understand is that lives are at stake here.

    What the hell does a no-deal mean for people in hospital, for food, for those of us living in the EU, and for other EU citizens living in the UK.

    What a colossal fuck-up.


    I can tell you the external view of the UK is as of that of the US atm. A bunch of short-termist morons who have no idea of the realities of their situation.


    Angry & afraid.

  2. So we've had 10 of those Ikea standing desks in the office for 2.5 years now. I'd say each gets about 1hr per day of being raised and the rest lowered. Every single one of them has had the ac adapter die between January and June of this year. 3 of them also had a broken motor, and Ikea told us that they wouldn't replace those, as it's basically the whole desk. For now we just ended up making those ones fixed tables for now.

    I think for the price they're great, but you definitely get what you pay for.

    On the other hand, I am using one of Ikea's conference corner tables at home for a desk. https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/desks/conference-meeting-tables/bekant-conference-table-birch-veneer-white-spr-49047464/ which seems to be excellent as a general purpose table.

  3. For running & the gym I just use these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Urbanears-Plattan-Wireless-Bluetooth-Headphones/dp/B00XQ37XR6

    They're cheap, sound fine & are wireless. If you get upset with the sweat building on them, then just push kitchen roll on them afterwards to absorb the sweat.

    They're also load of those spot version things (in-ear with strap around back) which are the same. e.g.: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B072MXKRJ1/ref=s9_acsd_top_hd_bw_bH8tD_c_x_1_w?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-4&pf_rd_r=8ZCSMFAN7ZZAV7CK6WAQ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=47084367-a6a8-5268-903f-2bef76b19d4a&pf_rd_i=4085751

  4. Totally agree with Todd. SD Cards are a real pointless ballache.

    And with the growth of streaming, no-one wants lossless anyway. You'd never have the bandwidth to download it. It's about finding the sweet spot. E.g. Spotify's Ogg Vorbis usage is actually pretty high quality, and it's extremely rare to find people who can here the difference at that bitrate with that format.

    And I still think you're missing the point about hardware design. By removing the 3.5mm they can make the devices thinner & use that space for something else (like battery), and without accessing the SD card they're also making a lot more use of the rest of the space for something else (like battery). Also, phone creators should add more battery.

    On that note, it annoys me that if I use the Facebook App, that will include menu notifications for Messenger that will then request for me to open the app, well, why not just keep everything to the app then? Don't show me those in another app. Seriously, don't get me started on all the ways in which Facebook just fails for me.

    That's called unbundling. Actually it does make sense for when you have separate use cases and user experiences but occasionally combine the two. I actually quite like it. Apps like Foursquare are the ones that really didn't do it right for me, as I believe they separated 1 use cases into 2 apps.

  6. Agree with Myrrh. I use WhatsApp & iMessage because that's what everyone I communicate with uses. Occasionally people also communicate with me on hangout or messenger, which is why I installed the apps. But other than that, it's basically all the other 2. It's the same conversation we used to have about ICQ/AIM/Yahoo/MSN. Being idealistic around any form of communication is fair enough, but you lose out as a result.

  7. Yeah. Quick use tells me the same. If you're happy to pay the price then both iPhone & Pixel are fantastic phones. Just depends on what you can afford. I mean, I still think the galaxy s4 mini was the best Android phone in a long time, in terms of what you got for value for money.


    Using both iOS & Android every day I still find myself turning to the iPhone over Android though honestly.
